Are you hunting or trapping them?
There was a good story in the last issue of Fur-Fish and Game about setting up a bait station for coyote. They were wiring the skinned out carcasses to the trees so the animals couldn't just pick them up and carry them away.
I don't use bait for coyotes . I use Hawbecker fox food lure and it works great to suck in the coyote . I havent trapped the coyote the past 2 years .The main reason being is the price of gas , can't afford to run every day checking traps .The last time I trapped coyotes I got 3 coyotes out of 4 with fox food lure It sure works for me I also have a deadly set for them .I find a mound and set my #3 coil in the middle of it making a slight hollow in the middle where the trap is burried .About 4 feet away I make a small hole with a bar and pour a little fox food lure into the hole then I put a little dead brush over the hole to make their curosity take over And the first thing they do is get up as high as they can for a good look and then it's the end of the line for the coyote .I use a 2 in staple and a 6 ft or longer pole as my drag .The pole should be thick enough to hold the staple and about 5 feet of chain
muskrat and beaver meat usually work very well i use a muskrat carcuss and it was abot a week old
it was gone the next day torn to pieces by some coyotes
i have a bottle of flesh bait that i havent used yet but its made from muskrats so it should work rather well
...isn't that what they use to make hotdogs ???
Yup for sure but I still love em.
The bears around here are going nutz for any food they can get this year the big decline in the berries I guess has made them crazy. I got mine on opening day and I was out fishing tonight and heard someone pumping shots off at one. I think it might have been a fellow american at one of the camps up here. The outfitter out here only uses butcher scraps so they must be hitting his over there this year too. Around here there is some monsters I just havent got my eye on the right one yet.
My biggest discomfort when it comes to hunting is my feet and when they get cold or wet my hunting fun slowly turns to a job trying to keep comfortable.
In my opinion wool socks are the only socks you should be using while hunting. Any other socks do not provide the proper insulation and if they get wet all they are good for is giving you blisters. A common myth people share is that cotton socks will keep you cooler than wool because of the lighter fabric but I have noticed that wool socks in...
